Q.A Small Green Grub Is Eating My Lemon Tree Flowers. How Do I Get Rid Of It?
My lime tree had this problem two months ago and I lost all my limes, I have found a small yellow grub about 5 mm long — seems to attack the open flowers and eats the stem as well. The flowers don’t fall off, but just stick to each other, but only one would be attached to tree. If you touch them the flowers fall off and I don’t get any fruit. Can you tell me what it is and how to get rid of it.
